CANNON FALLS -- The Kenyon-Wanamingo softball team appeared on track to win its first game this season until the final inning when Cannon Falls went on a hitting tear to take the lead and win by the 10-run rule. The Bombers won the Hiawatha Valley League game 14-4 in five innings. Cannon Falls improved to 5-5 overall and 3-3 in the HVL. K-W dropped to 0-5, 0-5. "We pretty much outplayed them the first three innings," K-W Coach Matt Nelson said.

Children in Goodhue and Wabasha counties are in line with others in Minnesota, according to an annual report released this week by the Children's Defense Fund. They are doing better overall than a decade ago, with fewer children in poverty and fewer teen-age mothers. But the director of the Kids Count report warns that cuts to day care, after-school and other programs under Gov. Tim Pawlenty's proposed budget could hurt children and their families. ''This is a really important time to look at how at how Minnesota kids are doing,'' Diane Benjamin told The Associated Press.

The Red Wing boys golf team has continued to show improvement throughout the first month of the season. And the scores are evidence. The Wingers shot a season-low 302 Wednesday during the Early Bird Invite at Mississippi National Golf Links. But the good team score didn't equal a win as Owatonna claimed the title with 299. Red Wing was second and Eden Prairie carded 310 to finish third. Red Wing Purple finished fifth at 320. "There were some bright spots," Coach Todd Petterson said. "I mean 302 is a good score.
A reader challenged the R-E on its front-page story Saturday about Regina Nicolosi, a Red Wing woman who says it's time the Catholic Church permits women into priesthood. The story should not have been published during Holy Week, the reader said. And, among other things, the article was not balanced. The call was not the first -- nor will it be the last -- criticism that will cross this desk. This telephone call also struck a personal chord, as I am a member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church.
